No matter how well you treat your hearing aids — and hopefully you’re cleaning them most every day — it’s a good idea to take them in to your hearing healthcare provider at least once a year for a professional cleaning. Here’s why:
- They have the tools and expertise to do a safe, deep clean that removes all the built-up wax, debris and oil without damaging the receivers or microphones.
- Just like your car after an oil change and tune-up, you should notice an improvement in how your hearing aid sounds and performs.
- Your hearing professional will also be able to inspect your hearing aids for any signs of damage and suggest or provide repairs.
- Regular, professional cleanings will help your hearing aids run better, longer.
To schedule a professional cleaning, contact your hearing healthcare professional.
